HAYDN String Quartet in D major,op 71 no 2BARTÓK String Quartet no 5, Sz. 102 BEETHOVEN String Quartet no 8 in E minor, op 59 no 2 ’Razumovsky’Presented in Association with Brisbane FestivalTour supported by the Musica Viva Amadeus SocietyPerhaps the most celebrated string quartet ever to emerge from the USA, the Emerson String Quartet is making its first Australian tour in over 19 years. Founded in 1976 and with only one personnel change in all that time, the ensemble has stacked up more than 30 recordings and countless awards. With such a pedigree, it is no surprise that the Emerson’s play with masterly warmth and ease: a spontaneous confidence and joy.Naturally enough, this master string quartet has chosen to play a program of great masterpieces. Haydn and Beethoven were writing with their audience very much in mind, and their quartets are full of attention-grabbing highlights and dreamy slow movements, while the vitality of folk music shapes the quartets of Bartók.
